A baby has been taken to hospital after a head-on collision between two cars in Timperley.
Emergency services were called to Shaftesbury Avenue at around 12.20 this afternoon following reports of a serious road traffic collision.
The road was closed while emergency vehicles attended, with a North West Air Ambulance landing on grassland nearby.
Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) has now confirmed that two cars collided head on, one of which had a baby on board.
The baby has subsequently been taken to Wythenshawe Hospital for what is described as “precautionary” checks.
The road has now reopened in both directions.
A statement from GMFRS said: “At around 12.20pm on Sunday 9 October, firefighters were called out to a road traffic collision on Shaftesbury Avenue, Timperley.
“Two fire engines, from Stretford and Withington, attended the scene where two cars had collided head on. A baby, on board one of the vehicles, has been taken to Wythenshawe Hospital for precautionary checks.
“Crews were in attendance for ten minutes, whist they made the cars and scene safe.”
